What we love
From reflexology to Swedish, hot stone to the ancient Thai method, your massage therapist will draw on a variety of modalities to encourage deep relaxation.
Before the facial, your master aesthetician will analyze your skin to ensure the experience is completely tailored to you. During the treatment, your skin will be treated to antioxidant serums that work to hydrate and heal.
The Advanced Hydra Dermabrasion Facial is a non-irritating resurfacing treatment designed to refine pores and minimize fine lines using a crystal-free diamond tip.
During the full body scrub, a gentle sea salt is complemented by lemon grass and lavender oil to uncover glowing skin. A soothing tropical rain rinse follows.
Then, sink into a deep hydrotherapy tub filled with aromatic extracts; light a candle, close your eyes and unwind with a glass of Champagne.
Founder Ole Henriksen, his skincare line and spa are a favorite of Elle, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire,Health, Allure, InStyle and more.

LA based lifestyle brand Splendid® is excited to announce the launch of their nationwide holiday book drive with Milk + Bookies to benefit local Boys & Girls Clubs, December 4, 2013 through January 3, 2014. In honor of the season of giving, families are encouraged to bring new or gently used books to Splendid® stores to donate to children without access to books of their own.
To celebrate the book drive launch, Splendid has partnered with Milk + Bookies to host two bedtime story times in December at their Montana Avenue and The Grove locations. Families are invited to come and enjoy bedtime stories, cocoa and cookies donated by Isabella’s Cookies and bring new or gently used books to donate to children who do not have books this holiday season. Book donations from both events will go to The Westside Family Clinic. In the spirit of the season, the 'Sandman' will also be there, reading stories that teach the importance of giving while families enjoy cocoa and treats. Come in your jammies!!
Milk + Bookies is a nationwide charitable organization that inspires children to give back, using books as its currency. The organization facilitates opportunities for children to raise book donations and give back to their peers who do not have access to books of their own. Splendid has long been a supporter of Milk + Bookies and is thrilled to help further their message.

SCRATCH teamed up with Emily Wagner, artist, designer, and Editor in Chief of LA’s hottest beauty/fitness/wellness blog Groomed L.A., to create a holiday nail wrap collection that is the perfect blend of classic and cutting edge.
An accomplished fine-artist, designer, and illustrator, Emily creates fabric and textile designs for home décor and apparel that can be found in shops including Rory Beca, Forever 21, and Ten Over Six.
Emily treats each piece of fabric as a painting, and follows the same process for creating textiles that goes into producing an art piece. Her process is an elaborate one of pushing and pulling, placing and removing of color, texture and composition until the right balance (or imbalance) is achieved.
Applying these same principles to this collaboration, Emily designed this collection to cover all of your wintry nail art dreams.

I have needed a watch for...EVER. Having to reach for my iphone when I want to know what time it is has become a time-guzzling annoyance. I end up losing ten minutes every time doing iphone crap like checking my social media feeds, email and who knows what else. Still, it never made sense to invest in a new watch, when my cell/clock was right there/ This started to bum me out. Isn't it enough that my iphone has now made my land line extinct - does it have to ruin it for the watch lovers in the hizzy? I love watches, that's all there is too it, so it was time so to speak, to indulge myself.
As a busy working mom of two little ones, our schedules live and die by the clock, so really, being on time is not an indulgence. (My awesome rationale, right?!)
When the Jorg Grayline was introduced to me, I first thought, oh cool! - I love, love, love the look of a super masculine, sporty number on me. Always have. The more it looks like I'm on my way to fight crime, possibly in a wet suit, perhaps in a submarine, the better. I was salivating over all the chunky men's timepieces I found on the website. Like these guys:
It wasn't long before I realized that OBAMA WEARS THIS BRAND (!!!) that I thought this watch shopping is about to get real, yo. I was a bit too excited.
And rightly so, because after scouring the site, I decided to take a little leap out of my comfort zone and go for the same idea, just...well, different!
I knew I wanted a big face, but I started gravitating something more streamline this time, a tad feminine, and something maybe my dad would wear.
I love the giant white face and gold touches - what gives it a bit of sportiness is the sturdy, thick black rubber band. It looks fantastically sexy with the crisp white oxford baggy denim slightly rolled and major heels.
I only take it off to sleep and shower. I've had it for two weeks and it's really been a game changer. I needed this. No more reaching for my phone to check the time, and wasting ten minutes of my life doing nonesense - when all I wanted to know is: WHAT THE TIME IS!
If you are in the market for a bad-ass, classic, super high quality timepiece for yourself or a gift - I implore you to poke around Jorg Gray's selection.
